If you have a curriculum specialist in your district, work with that person
to create a Needs Assessment. Take those results along with research data
on Spanish as a Heritage language to the VIPs in your district to get
support and resources (funds). You'll need to select text materials, design
a program, etc.

See below for links to many resources...
